Renault Captur

Renault Summer Deals

05 July 2018


RENAULT reckons it is giving more for less in a series of deals that will see £1,000 knocked off the price of some models, plus free finance, until October.

Introduced this week, it means that every Renault with the single exception of the new Megane RS now comes with free finance.

Additionally, the so-called EasyLife versions of the Clio and Captur are reduced by £1,000 when a car is part-exchanged during the traditionally quiet month of July.

As an example of its new car funding, a Renault Clio Play needs a deposit of £180 and then costs £180 a month over four years.

This is based on the full sticker price of £13,500. Alternatively buyers could borrow from a bank and then negotiate a cash discount from the dealer, which could be even cheaper.

The Play is the entry version, but comes with an enhanced specification that now includes 16-inch black alloy wheels, DAB radio with Bluetooth, USB and AUX ports, plus R&GO smartphone application allowing access to sat-nav.

There is also cruise control, air conditioning, electrically-adjustable and heated door mirrors, hands-free keycard, front and rear fog lights and front daytime running lights. Additionally there is electronic stability control, hill start assist, 60:40 split folding rear seats, front electric windows, height adjustable driver’s seat and a height and reach-adjustable steering wheel.

The Clio Iconic version costs £14,700, which is £254 less than the Dynamique Nav it replaces, despite the addition of 17-inch black alloy wheels, rear parking sensors, tinted rear and tailgate windows and chrome window surrounds. A multimedia system with seven-inch touchscreen satellite navigation is also included. The Clio Iconic TCe 75 costs £200 a month with a £200 deposit using free finance over 48 months.

The top-of-the-range Clio GT Line gets a sportier look, with 17-inch GT alloy wheels, a chrome rear diffuser and exhaust, dark metal door mirrors, side door inserts and front grille strip, body-coloured lower door protector and side skirts.

This is over and above the previous Dynamique S despite a price reduction of £525. There are also full LED front and rear headlights with integrated daytime running lights, automatic headlights and wipers, automatic climate control with quick demist function, a leather steering wheel and rear electric windows. The Clio GT Line costs £16,250, and the GT Line TCe 90 version is £230 a month with a £230 deposit and free finance over four years.

Renault’s best-seller is the Captur, which gets a price cut of £315 for the entry-level model.

The Capture now comes with the choice of a 90bhp petrol engine with a five-speed manual transmission or 90bhp diesel engine with a five-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission. It costs from £15,300.

On PCP finance the Captur Play is £200 a month with a £200 deposit and free finance over four years. The Captur Iconic costs £16,500, which is a reduction of £400, and costs £230 a month.

The biggest Captur price saving is the GT Line, which costs £1,755 less than the Signature X Nav it replaces.

It comes with automatic folding mirrors, hands-free parking, blind spot warning, front and rear parking sensors and a rear parking camera.

There is also a seven-inch touchscreen R-Link multimedia system, TomTom Live satnav with European mapping plus Android Auto capability.

You also get cornering front fog lights, LED headlights, grey front and rear skid plates, central armrest, part-leather upholstery, heated front seats, aluminium pedals, electrochrome rearview mirror and sunglasses storage.

There are also price cuts of up to £735 for the Megane range, which now costs from £17,315.
